ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) – An airplane landed safely at the St. Cloud Regional Airport despite jammed landing gear.

Firefighters were notified about 1:30 p.m. Saturday that a single-engine Cessna 182RG needed to make an emergency landing due to a partial jam in its left gear.

The St. Cloud Times reports the pilot circled for almost an hour as authorities and airport workers figured out a plan. Steven Anderson, a local pilot at the scene, told the newspaper there was good coordination between the pilot and people on the ground, and everyone did exactly what they were supposed to do.

Two fire engines, seven firefighters, St. Cloud police officers and ambulance crews were all on hand for the landing.

The pilot, who was not identified, was not injured. The plane sustained minor damage.
